My garden is teeming with ladybird larva. Watch out aphids!  
Anyone else?

    I haven't ever seen the larvae in my garden but I do have a few little ladybirds already, bady needed, lots of aphids on some plants, particularly the roses
  • No ladybirds here yet but I have found that brushing the aphids off my roses with an old fence paint brush is working a treat!

    I also use a paint brush on aphids. Apparently even if they break one leg they are unable to survive, so you don’t have to squash them hard.
